Five Teams In Talks With Thomas Robinson

Thomas Robinson has had conversations with the Spurs, Nets, Suns, Heat and Hornets in the wake of his buyout deal with the Nuggets, reports Shams Charania of RealGM (Twitter link). The former No. 5 overall pick went to Denver in the deadline-day trade that sent Arron Afflalo to the Blazers.

The Suns can spend the most, with more than $3.247MM in cap room. Miami has a disabled player exception worth nearly $2.653MM it can spend. The Spurs have a prorated portion of their mid-level, worth about $2.4MM, while the Hornets have their room exception, which comes to about $2MM at this point. The exceptions that San Antonio and Charlotte possess reduce in value daily. The Nets are limited to the minimum salary, which also prorates on a daily basis.

Robinson has seen his minutes decline each season after his rookie campaign, when he was traded midseason from the Kings to the Rockets. Portland acquired him when Houston sent him out in a cap-clearing move that helped the Rockets sign Dwight Howard, but at each stop, the power forward has failed to live up to his draft position. Still, he’s an efficient rebounder, averaging 4.2 boards in 12.2 minutes per game this season.

    Someone needs to give this guy consistent minutes, tough to call him a bust when he hasn’t seen more than 20 minutes per game in a season yet. If I were Thomas id be looking at a team that would offer him the most playing time to build up his value for FA.

  2. Isaiah Johnson

    I would love to see Him come to the heat. I was a fan of him at Kansas. After losing bosh we are in desperate need of a PF. Haslem is our only 4 and he is washed up. He will get alot of minutes here and can show the league he is a quality player possibly more if given the oppurtunity. This guy literally got no minutes at his previous teams

  3. Brandon Myers

    Miami makes the most sense, for both player and team.
